Y-Shac assists young people aged between 15-20 years old who are homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness in crisis accommodation and 16 - 25 year olds who are in transitional housing. Young people find themselves in need of emergency accommodation for a number of reasons, including: • an unstable home or family life • family or relationship breakdown • eviction or unmanageable rising living costs • risk of, or exposure to, crime, drugs or violence • no money or loss of steady income • complex needs • leaving correctional facilities If you, or anyone you know, are experiencing any of these things, Y-Shac can help. Services include: • Shared emergency accommodation in two locations in the Perth metro area with 24 hour support from youth workers. • Transitional Housing with either one bedroom units with the crisis services or shared houses in the Rockingham or Cockburn regions. • Support for young people to get back on their feet, including advocacy and referral to specialist services. • Independent living activities including financial planning, budgeting and tenancy information, and education on health, nutrition and cooking. • Goal setting and future planning through case management. • Creative recreational activities. • A Drug Education and Support Service that focuses on harm minimisation through alcohol and drug education, group activities, and 1-to-1 support. Y-Shac Spearwood crisis accommodation site is a three bed facility capable of providing short stays and quick admissions. Our Rockingham site is a six bed crisis accommodation facility, for up to six individuals, capable of providing accommodation for up to three months. Both Y-shac sites are operated as a gender neutral service.
